The other day, I was talking to some other bloggers about Nablopomo. Remember how fun that is? I DO. kind of. And then I got this fantastic idea: “omg I’m totally going to do Nablopomo this year. TOTALLY.” But I quickly realized this would likely be quite impossible since I’ll be traveling for half of November. But then I started getting all nostalgic and was literally craving this blog.
You see, Nablopomo was really the start to my love of blogging. I started this blog in December 2006, pretty much writing for myself and a few friends who took the time to read. But then I posted pretty much every day in November of 2007 and connected with all kinds of crazy bloggers. Call me sentimental, but I met so many amazing people that November. That’s when I realized the Internet is full of amazingness and I don’t care if I’m a dork. It was this Nablopomo post that connected me with To Kiss the Cook. Because we were both obsessed with Big Bird Goes to Japan. Seriously? Yup, I love Nablopomo.
And all these thoughts were going through my mind as I’m sitting at dinner at turkey school. Yes, at Butterball University. Where I just spent 2 days learning every single thing possible about cooking turkey. And blogging about it. Because I’m a blogger and that’s what I do.
I just can’t believe there was a time in my life where I didn’t blog. What the heck did I do?? The thing is, I need another Nablopomo to get me back into this blog. Because I love it. But it’s tough juggling two blogs, even though they’re totally and completely different. I need them both. I’m really starting to learn that.
While writing content for two blogs can sometimes get to be a bit much, the hardest part is probably interacting with the community. I LOVE reading other blogs and commenting, but what name do I comment under?? I generally comment with We are Not Martha, but there’s no way to get from WANM to here (nor do I really want there to be). It hurts my head thinking about all my log-ins.
What I’m trying to say (ahem, I talk a lot) is that I’m going to start posting as much as I can. And that’s going to be a lot. And I’m not going to concern myself with how many people are reading. Because when I first started this blog, I didn’t care. I didn’t think I would actually turn into a blogger. But I did. And so many beautiful things have happened since then.
